The Research Center is a standard production building that offers 4 contracts.

Among the standard production buildings, the Research Center provided some of the longest contracts but generally with low rates of return (cpm). However, a recent update made all of the contracts shorter and bring more money, which now makes it one of the best buildings in the game by coins per minute.
